Actually, instead of removing buf, you might want to look into doing a
page_string instead of send_to_char so when 100 or so players are on,
you don't spam the poor 'who'er.

	Well, duh...  What do you expect to happen when you append "buf" to 
it and then send_to_char it?  The first pass buf is normal, the second 
time it contains the first player in who plus what you just added, the 
third time all previous players plus the one you just added it.  Perhaps 
you should remove "buf" from the parameter list.
